Big Southwest Credit Offers Still Live – Up to 80,000 Points

Written by Charlie

Contrary to what you have seen, the big Southwest credit card offers are not dead and you can still get up to 80,000 points. Find the links here!

If you saw the various blog posts talking about the big Southwest credit cards ending on Wednesday, that was the affiliate links for those offers that ended. Fortunately, there are still public offers that still exist if you missed out on those offers before.

Links for the Big Southwest Credit Card Offers

Note: Yesterday, Southwest changed their requirement for the number of points you would need to earn the Southwest Companion Pass in 2020 and beyond. If you apply for these cards to get the points specifically to earn the Pass in 2020, keep that in mind! Of course, if you need another card and are eligible, these are the best offers right now so check them out!

Here are the various links for the big Southwest card offers that were to have expired. I do not know how long these will stick around – the public links normally live for another few days to a couple of weeks after the affiliate links die (note that none of these links are affiliate links and they do not earn me anything).

  • Southwest Performance Business Card – 80,000 points after spending $5,000 in the first 3 months ($199 annual fee)
  • Southwest Premier Business Card – 60,000 points after spending $3,000 in the first 3 months ($99 annual fee)
  • Southwest Plus Personal Card – Earn 40,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months and an additional 20,000 points after spending $12,000 in the first 12 months ($69 annual fee)
  • Southwest Premier Personal Card – Earn 40,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months and an additional 20,000 points after spending $12,000 in the first 12 months ($99 annual fee)
  • Southwest Priority Personal Card – Earn 40,000 points after spending $1,000 in the first 3 months and an additional 20,000 points after spending $12,000 in the first 12 months ($149 annual fee)

Keep in mind that if you apply for a personal card, here are the rules about receiving the bonus for it: The product is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of any Southwest Rapid Rewards® Credit Card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of any Southwest Rapid Rewards Credit Card who received a new Cardmember bonus within the last 24 months. So, if you have a personal Southwest card or received a bonus on one in the last 24 months, you are not eligible.

A different rule exists for the business cards: This new Cardmember bonus offer is not available to either (i) current Cardmembers of this business credit card, or (ii) previous Cardmembers of this business credit card who received a new Cardmember bonus for this business credit card within the last 24 months. So, you can get a different business card and receive the bonus as long as you had not had that one in the last 24 months (as far as the bonus.

These cards also fall under the Chase 5/24 rule.

Are these cards worth it? YES! Even with the change, you are still getting a lot of points for “free” award travel. If you travel by yourself, you likely don’t care much about the Companion Pass anyway (though it is always nice to throw a companion on for some trip!) and would just want the points.

Either way, if you need more Southwest points, these offers are the best around and they likely won’t be around for a whole lot longer.
